torrential rains and massive floods in latin america on the el nino. this much feared weather front has been observed for centuries and researchers say climate change could be reinforcing this phenomenon. in autumn, when warm sea-water flows east into the pacific from indonesia and australia towards south america, usually trade winds hold the water masses at bay and push them back towards south-east asia. but every couple of years. el nino throws this system off balance. put simply, it weakens the trade winds which acted as barriers. now the uncontrolled water mass heads towards the coasts of south america. there, this kind of climate tsunami leads to massive flooding. the people of the piura region on the coast of peru live in constant fear of the el nino. every time this natural disaster strikes, it causes chaos in their lives. >> today there's no trace of the havoc wrought by el niÑo. valentin ruiz's banana plantation is thriving. it will soon be time to harvest. but the peruvian farmer will never forget the day he nearly lost everything. >> the water was up to here. here, where my

memorials commemorating the courageous men and women that made america what it is, i'm reminded we too went through challenging periods, when america was divided by a bitter civil war 150 years ago. president abraham lincoln had the vision to pull us together toward a shared goal of peace and prosperity. growing up in california i didn't know much about the arab world. then after graduating from the university of california at berkeley, i traveled to north africa as peace corps engineer. i worked as an english teacher in morocco two years and quickly grew to love this part of the world. since joining the service i spent almost my entire career in middle east and africa. one of the things that impressed me were people old enough to have lived and traveled in the united states when we had closer relations. those days are back. we had 1,700 libyans apply for fullbright grants to study in the united states this year, more than any other country in the world. we know that libya is still recovering from an intense period of conflict. there are many courageous libyans who bear the scars of th

-- i wanted to go into the bleakest time of america's history, the truly-- the biggest sin that the country committed and the sin that we're still paying for to this day, we haven't gotten past the sin. part of the reason we haven't gotten past it is we have to almost lie about it, lie by omission. and i wanted to throw out there on the table. i wanted to take a modern-day audience and stick them in the antebellum south and see what america america was like at that time in that part country. and deal-- now, i want to do it in an entering way, and me the way to do that is to do it as a genre pies because it seems like most of the time-- whenever it has been dealt with, at least in the last 30 years or 40 years, it's been either historical with a capital "h" which i think kind of put it at an arm's distance, kinds of puts it a little bit under class, to observe and here are the facts. and we all know the facts, more or less, or there's been movies like, "mandingo" or "good-bye uncle tom" which in many ways i think are much clorls to the truth than the capital "h"movies. so i wanted to
